Some steel Norco team frames were Canadian made, and every top end Norco was assembled in BC up until a few years ago.
Quite honestly, I think the guidelines this month are making for a REALLY tight bike selection - I mean, if we adhere to the strict letter of the law, we'll end up with Brodies, Dekerfs, a select few Rockies and Procycle bikes. NOT very diverse, by any means.
I suggest we go with 100% Canadian OWNED companies or bikes build in Canada - which yes, still excludes Konas, but loops in Rek Tek, early GT Xizangs (build by Lavoie Titanium)...There is a loophole here, however, that still dis-allows asian RM frames, from the early-late 90's, as Rocky was at least partially owned by a German company until it was sold to Procycle...
Leave it to John, last month had to be made in USA so made in Canada frame would already include 'Toads, RekTeck they don't need looping in. Only stipulation is the frame has to be made in Canada, nothing about a Canadian company, so the Xixang is already included as well (did not know that btw).
Hopefully the title should be reasonably self explanatory but we're looking for bikes made in the Canada. Certainly frame needs to be made in Canada, the more components the better. Won't accept bikes/frames made by Canadian manufacturers produced in the Far East or elsewhere.
off course there may need to be proof frames where not made in Canada, not just hearsay/assumption.
